In the name of science, insurance company Allstate, is handing out 100,000 video games to the senior set to help "increase visual acuity, cognitive skills, and reaction time" as a part of a plan that they hope will decrease accidents in elderly drivers. If individuals in the test group beat the game, they'll get a discount on their insurance.

Wait a minute, don't teenagers have the highest accident rate? And they've been playing video games since birth!
